The job search is a process that can be as short as several weeks, or more likely, several months.
One week you have networking meetings and interviews scheduled, people are responding to your emails and you feel encouraged and hopeful — then radio silence — making you feel confused, frustrated or even helpless.
Five strategies for dealing with this emotional roller coaster.
For Job Seekers, we offer a coaching platform to help you get hired!
Everything from CV/LinkedIn creation, to getting seen, getting interviews, negotiating, pitching, closing etc..

Hey everyone! I recently graduated this past December and started my current role January 24th. Just this morning I had a recruiter from Meta reach back out to me about a role I applied too last month. Should i schedule an interview with the recruiter? What if it goes well? Would it look bad if I quit my current position to take this role if I end up getting an offer? One reason I would want to switch is because the pay would most likely be a lot higher at Meta then in my current position.

Hello all, I've recently had an interview with Cognizant for the AS400 developer role. I've completed my 1st round which went for more than an hour. Now I got a confirmation that I'm shortlisted and the team will reach out for the L2 discussion. So, does it mean it is a managerial round or an HR discussion. Appreciate your response on this. TIA!!

2. What should be the frequency of follow up with bankers in the bank in which i had discussion already
I had interviews with EY recruiter reached out for desired salary, I informed $170k as base, yesterday he reached out to provide an update that it would $160k and 10% bonus and it’s pending for approval from partner and it might take a week or two , when should I start negotiating the salary? Should I wait offer letter or should I start right away?
Job base salary presented by HR during screening interview was $130-$145k. I have 3-5 years more experience and more education compared to the posting requirements (BA required, I have a MS). I love the position and what it entails, but was hoping to reach $150-$160 base salary. If offered the position, is this a reasonable ask? This is for big pharma, data analytics in New England.
Def got ghosted for asking v high salary. Did well on interviews. Is it too weird/desperate to send another follow up email after more than a month, explain how I accidentally asked for that much $lol
I am about to give interview in epsilon for data analyst role? I like to know about company? Work life balance for data science projects? Internal hikes? It will be great if any fish can tell me about little those aspects.
I'm currently a civil design engineer, and trying to switch to real estate as a Program Manager. I have an interview in a week where they tell me I will have to work on ( for about 3-4 hours ) on an operational case study.
The job is located in Paris and the job is in French .
Does anyone here have any case studies in Real estate that they can share ? and if they're from France, that would be even better.
Thank you in advance !

I’m convinced that the reason some of these firms are so prestigious is because they have intentionally exclusionary recruitment practices. I used to believe that you had to already be rich to get hired at MBB. Now being on the other side of the recruitment process , I really do feel that it rings true. I hate the way we evaluate candidates and decide on who is “high priority” during coffee chats.
Are there any recruiters or talent acquisition specialists here seeking an entry level consultant? I’m currently seeking new job opportunities at the moment.

Hi everyone! With an internal promotion to manager I am wondering if the salary raise is negotiable? I know a few managers on the team hired in at 110-120 thousand but have also heard I can expect a 5% raise or less moving up internally, which would put me around 25% below that. Hoping negotiation might be an option. Thanks for any insights!

I was promoted to manager in Jan but received an offer with a 35% salary increase and much cheaper health insurance outside the firm. I am 85% sure I’ll take the offer, but wanted to see if anyone could think of acting I may be missing out on by leaving? FYI my inflation increase was larger than my promotion increase and my student loan payments also were stopped since I’m no longer an SA. I think what is holding me back is my guilt for my immediate team but just want to check.

Ok I’m gonna be honest it seems a little overkill/extra, especially for an internal role.
I think the point is to use it where you can. Its applicability will vary from internal role to internal role.
Being perceived to be against an employer strategy is never risk free, particularly if it actively subverts change. How risky it is depends on the individual role.
